Emerging Writer in Residence events at the KSP Writers Centre

As part of my upcoming Emerging Writer in Residence stint at the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers’ Centre in Greenmount, WA, I’ll be hosting two events: a publishing workshop and a literary dinner. Details to follow.

“Set Sail into Publishing” with Guy Salvidge at KSP Writers’ Centre – Saturday 27th April 1-4pm

So your novel, play or book of poetry is written and raring to go – where to next? Should you send your manuscript to the traditional publishers, most of which are located in Melbourne and Sydney? (If they even accept unsolicited manuscripts, that is.) Maybe you could try your hand at major literary awards like The Australian/Vogel’s Literary Award or the T.A.G. Hungerford Award? Should you opt for a smaller print-on-demand publisher? What are the benefits and drawbacks of this form of publication? Maybe you should go it alone with self-publishing, or perhaps you could become part of the digital revolution and forego print publication altogether? Maybe you should consider a Manuscript Assessment or Mentorship first?

All of these options and more will be discussed in “Set Sail into Publishing: Charting a Course for Your Writing Career” with WA writer Guy Salvidge.  Participants will navigate the treacherous waters of modern publishing and chart a course forward for themselves and their creative work.

Costs: $30 for KSP members and $45 for non-members. Booking and payment in advance is essential. You can book online here.

Reading and Literary Dinner with Guy Salvidge, Emerging Writer in Residence at KSP – Tuesday 7th May 7-9.30pm

Guy Salvidge will read from and talk about his work at this literary dinner. Bring your favourite drinks to complement the three course meal, meet Guy and mingle with local authors.

Costs: $25 for KSP-members and $30 for non-members. Booking and payment in advance is essential. You can book online here

    That looks like an electric typewriter on the white board reflection. Are you using that a lot?

      Nah, this photo is actually from another writer’s workshop that I was helping to run this weekend. The image on the screen is from a movie based on one of her scripts 🙂
